MSA – measurement system analysis

The MSA course  is focused on how to review the control procedures used to ensure process quality.


  • Under the guidance of an experienced lecturer, participants apply the content mainly using exercises and examples from practice.
  • Top lecturers with experience and experts in their field.
  • Hands-on training
  • Peer Learning and Best Practices
  • A high degree of satisfaction of course participants.

The form of realization of the course is  face-to-face or online (or both forms) .
The working methods used in the training programs are chosen in such a way as to ensure interactivity, adapt the content to the needs of the participants and  prioritize the transfer of knowledge into practice .

  • Provide practical guidance on the verification of control procedures used to ensure process quality, derived from the latest recommendations of AIAG MSA IV industrial process management groups. edition and VDA 5.
  • Using specific examples, show the participants how the mentioned methods can be effectively used in their own organization.
  • Practical exercises to help apply MSA methodologies to selected control procedures.


Introduction to the capability analysis of the measurement system

  • Reasons for evaluating control procedures (measurement systems).

A model for evaluating the capability of gauges

  • Measurement variability, measurement accuracy (MSA).
  • Basic statistics and models in the assessment of measurement capability (AIAG and VDA 5).
  • Accuracy, repeatability, verifiable accuracy, stability, linearity – basic definitions in (AIAG).
  • Standard uncertainty u(xi), combined standard uncertainty u(y), expanded measurement uncertainty UMS UMP. Basic definitions in (VDA 5).

Methodology (procedures) in determining the capability of measuring devices

  • Method for determination. Resolution (uRE), Bias (uBI), Linearity (uLIN).
  • Standard method of repeatable and verifiable accuracy (RaR standard).
  • Modified method of repeatable and verifiable accuracy (RaR modified).
  • Attribute methods – cross tabulation methods and Cohen’s Kappa calculation.
  • Indicator of the suitability of the measurement system and the QMS process, QMP (VDA).
  • Criteria for assessing the suitability of the measurement system and process in VDA and AIAG MSA methodologies.

Analysis of measurement capability, R&R study – practical exercises

  • Exercises on continuous measurements and attributive measurements.

Solving tasks

  • Solving tasks from the field of activity of training participants with computer support.
  • Practical questions from the application with the possibility of data evaluation in the MS Excel or MiniTab® environment.

During the MSA training, the participants can use either their own software (MiniTab® or other) or the “SPC for Excel” software, which will be loaned to them during the training and can be purchased at a discounted price.

For course participants, we offer the possibility of subsequent application support in the form of individual consultation with the lecturer or in the form of workshops directly at the client.
